School Closure Due to COVID-19 Disease Dear Families and Friends, COVID-19 Closure This evening after receiving new guidance from State Officials regarding coronavirus-related health concerns, and with the support of our Board of Education, we decided to close the Woodstock Public Schools as of Monday, March 16, 2020. We hope to return to our regular operations at the end of a two-week period but we will evaluate the conditions at that time. This was not a decision that was made lightly or in isolation. We understand that this is an unprecedented situation that will have a tremendous effect on all families, but we feel it is necessary for the protection of our community. At this point we don’t have any confirmed cases of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) in Woodstock but there are confirmed cases in neighboring communities. We understand that there will be many questions and we will do our best to answer them. We will provide supplemental materials to continue and reinforce learning over the school closure. These will either be distributed electronically or via a printed packet sent home with your child on Friday. You are encouraged to reach out to your child’s teacher if there are any questions. The Woodstock community is unique and unites as a family in times of crisis. This is a time when we need to come together and take care of one another. We encourage you to reach out to us as well. Obviously, in the coming days you will want to monitor your emails and our website as we communicate about these and other topics that we have spent the past two weeks preparing. Sincerely, Viktor Toth, Superintendent of Schools Kristen Elliott, Woodstock Middle School Principal Jenna Demers, Woodstock Elementary School Principal
